Two because person who checked us in was friendly. From the inside It looks like an Extended Stay in Columbus, Ohio. Construction of the pool is an eye sore. Music playing outside is fine but then it is interrupted every time someone flushes from another room you can hear everything. We came here for a special occasion so we were... More

My husband and I stayed at Napili Kai for four days late Sept. 2014. We learned on arrival (during a stretch of very hot weather), that the room we had reserved was not air conditioned. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us and quickly cleaned an ocean front, air conditioned room for us. The beautiful room, lanai,... More

My wife and I were in Maui last month celebrating our 25th anniversary. I spent ALOT of time researching places to stay for our trip. I especially find TripAdvisor very helpful. We were very happy with our stay at Napili Kai---the room, location, staff. I would recommend getting a room with AC. We were in a studio in the Aloha... More

I’ve been living on and off in Maui, Hawaii and always make it a point to stay at the Napili Kai Beach Resort. It an older hotel/condo resort that sits at the north end of beautiful Napili Bay. The resort has everything to offer and has been renovated so that the rooms offer kitchenettes, air-conditioning, scenic views of Napili Bay,... More

The Napili Kai experience is unique. The obvious: well run, great staff, great rooms. The special: the unequaled location, the great beach, the evening sunsets. There there is the food at Sea House -- breakfast, lunch, dinner -- all have been superb. There are also fun events: the kid show on Tuesday, the free Mai Tais on Wednesday, etc. Why... More

We've lost count of our visits to Napili Kai, but every time we return we are reminded why we do . . . the Sea House restaurant on site, pineapple (coffee, iced tea, lemonade) on the beach at 10 am every morning along with mini-lectures on all things Hawaiian culture . . . two fun putting greens, the Makai Hale...

Stayed at Napili Kai from Oct 3 - 11. Room was right next to the lobby but that didn't mar the experience. Only concern is the popcorn ceiling in bedroom, probably laced with abestos given the age of the building. Was glad to get a room with A/C.The bathroom was a bit dated and lacked a larger, glassed-in shower and... More

This was our fourth time visiting the Napili Kai Beach resort. Everything was perfect from the time we checked in until the time we left. Hotel staff was always very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make our stay more comfortable. The remodeled rooms were lovely,clean and very well air-conditioned. The concierge, Happy, was very helpful... More

We have been going to Napili Beach Resort since the 80s but we chose Napili Kai this time b/c our Mum needs a wheelchair or walker to get around and Napili Bay Resort was difficult 2 years ago getting her down to the beach. Napili Kai was the answer as they have paved paths right down to the beach and... More

This is an updated older property. Very high end finishes but most of the units do not have A/C. Parking can be a problem because it is between Kapalua Bay and Napili Bay. Over all it is a very nice place with great views. Very expensive for what you get IMHO.
